Reliving 'The Streak:' The Undertaker defeats Big Show, A-Train at WrestleMania 19
Now that The Undertaker's famous undefeated streak has ended, we can now look back it in its entirety. In the days leading up to WrestleMania 31, we will take a look back at every memorable chapter of the feat that can never be duplicated. Here's a look at what became the holy grail of professional wrestling.
1-0 | 2-0 | 3-0 | 4-0 | 5-0 | 6-0 | 7-0 | 8-0 | 9-0 | 10-0 |
The Undertaker vs. Big Show & A-Train (11-0)
WrestleMania XIX | Safeco Field — Seattle, Wash. | March 30, 2003
Match length: 9:42
After back-to-back years of consecutive eventful WrestleMania matches, The Undertaker was handed another dud at WrestleMania XIX.
WrestleMania XIX is arguably one of the greatest WrestleManias of all time, but it had nothing to with anything The Undertaker did on this night.
It wasn't his fault, however, as he was put in a nearly impossible situation.
Heading into the event, The Undertaker was scheduled to team with his protégé Nathan Jones against Big Show and A-Train, but Jones was ambushed right before the show, leaving The Undertaker to enter the match by himself against the two behemoths. The result was the one and fortunately only handicap match during the course of the streak.
The match itself was as good as it could have been given the circumstances, but it certainly didn't live up to the legacy of the streak.
Jones eventually interfered in the match, which helped Big Evil go to 11-0 at WrestleMania. The highlight of the proceedings was probably Limp Bizkit playing The Undertaker down to the ring, which was the only time he has had a live band perform his entrance.
Although the streak lived on to see another year, The Undertaker's biker character did not. This was the final WrestleMania appearance for the American Badass version of The Undertaker.
Kane buried that version of The Undertaker alive in November of 2003, which spawned the resurrection of the original version of the character.
The biker version of The Undertaker appeared at three WrestleManias, vanquishing all three of his foes, including Triple H and Ric Flair, who have a combined 29 world titles between them.
